Metz vs Lens: Our Best Free Predictions
Lack of victory in the last six Ligue 1 games puts Metz under pressure as they prepare for the weekend fixture against 10th placed Lens. Will the hosts get away with the points or it will be another struggle for survival? Our best free predictions for this game are:
Under [email protected] 33/50 (1.66)
Metz may have challenges in scoring goals but a strong defence is there to show for their struggles. The hosts managed three clean sheets from three barren draws in the last five games. We expect them to stage a fight for points on home soil that could lead to only a few goals getting scored in this game.
Lens to score the first goal @ 61/100 (1.61)
Metz has been poor in scoring goals lately. The hosts found the net only one goal in the last six games. It is something they will have to address in this fixture or risk losing the game to Lens. On the other hand, Lens scored eight goals in the last eight. Because of that, we expect the visitors to be the first team to score in this game.

Metz vs Lens Match Preview, News and Betting Tips
Metz has faced some wrath against Ligue opponents this season and even in other competitions. The hosts boast only one victory in the last ten matches and could face an even bigger disappointment against Lens on Sunday 13/03/2022. With no win in the last six games, perhaps the only hope for Metz is a strong defence that has earned them three clean sheets within that time. The hosts have leaked only five goals in the last six games. However, a poor form record in as many previous games that saw score only one goal is a big headache for head coach, Frederic Antonetti.
On the other hand, Lens head coach, Franck Haise will lock horns with Antonetti for fourth time. The visiting coach has had some mixture of fortunes in recent games. Lens bagged two wins and one draw from the last five games. A shaky defence is, however, something to worry about as they did not record a clean sheet in the last eight games.
Metz predicted lineup: Caillard, Kouyate, Bronn, Kana-Biyik, Cande, Amadou, Nguette, Boulaya, Preville, Mafouta and Sarr.
Lens predicted lineup: Leca, Gradit, Danso, Medina, Clauss, Doucoure, Fofana, Haidara, Kakuta, Sotoca and Kalimuendo.
